to larks, tongues, and aspic. maybe the first thing you think of when you think about chicago is not ass-burning sichuan food. but one of my favorite dishes in the world, anywhere -- mapo dofu. yes, a tofu dish. stippled heavily with pork in a burning, numbing, "9 1/2 week"-style exercise in sadomasochism that will start you thinking some deeply disturbing thoughts. do you know mapo dofu is it because it looks like spotted grandmother? or did spotted, pock-marked grandmother create the dish? >> man: both. >> anthony: both. >> man: yes. [ laughs ] >> anthony: right. night in metro manila, and i'm ready for my single favorite filipino street food. possibly the best thing you could ever eat with a cold beer. i'm talking, of course, about sisig. hot sizzling pig face with a
runny egg on top, and, bitch, you better ask somebody, because nothing is getting in between me and this spicy, chewy, fatty goodness. this is really, really good. and then there's this, the dish that almost alone brought me back to cologne. it was sweet, sweet memories of this stegosaurus-sized shank of cured pork boiled and boiled until it literally falls away from the bone steaming and moist, a symphony of meat and gelatin and good, good stuff. god is hiding in there somewhere. it's when the himmel uhd erde, or heaven and earth, hits the table that i start getting deep into my happy zone. that's blood sausage, fried onions, and mashed potatoes with applesauce, which, if you don't like, by the way, pretty much removes you from my "will save from drowning" list. traditional rheinischer sauerbraten. morrissey is going to brown out his shorts he sees you eating this 'cause it is, how shall i say, equine in origin?

ooh, that's awesome. that's what you do with the brown stuff. ugh, i hate myself. >> karla mae: hi, ma'am, jolly afternoon. >> anthony: it's time to drink. though, to be fair, almost any time is time for a drink. >> dima: hello, yamas. good morning. >> anthony: yamas. oh. >> lambros: yeah, it kind of puts the day into perspective when you start off with a drink. >> anthony: oh. hair of the dog. yep. in villages like gorvaleti, custom must be observed. there is, i gather, a very formal structure to these toasts. >> man: quite, for the first, uh, seven-ish i would say. >> anthony: well, you sort of lose the plot after seven. >> man: no.

to be good, right? this is the finest of the local beer. >> pierre: well, it's the cheapest one. >> anthony: oh. well, i'm a cheap date. i don't like this custom, though. i don't -- that, this. i don't want to know how many beers i've had. they're forcing beers on us. i didn't order a beer, and another one just keeps coming. >> tracey: do you know how to make it stop? >> anthony: face plant into my schnitzel? you know that moment when an animal dies and they look at you and there's a look in their face, i always interpret it as, "i'm very disappointed in you." >> dan: yeah. >> anthony: i always felt like, look, whatever this thing i shot i will treat it the way i would like to be treated. i mean, if you're gonna shoot me -- >> dan: yeah. >> anthony: -- please -- >> dan: don't just rip my breasts out and throw my ass away. >> anthony: yeah. that's a country music song right there. "don't rip my breasts off." [ laughs ] prost. >> melek: prost. >> anthony: everything's fine. how do i get out of drinking? how do i avoid chugging chacha?

i resist that instinct. i mean, i think the world is filled with generally nice people clumsily blundering towards doing the best they can under ever-shifting circumstances. so, i mean, i think if you travel enough you will see things that are painful and ugly and hurtful and you will see conflict and, you know, maybe it's cyclical. i mean, we're certainly seeing a lot of things these days that we haven't seen in a while. cologne, of all places, is now the example for both sides of an increasingly bitter argument over whether europe, and by extension the world, should turn their backs on the millions of refugees spilling out of syria, iraq, and a middle east spinning into chaos and slaughter. with the bodies of children washing up on greek beaches and few other countries willing to help, germany has taken in 1.1 million people fleeing isis, russian and syrian bombs, and war.
sakher al mohamad is one of many who found his way to cologne. hani zaitoun helps refugees as they try to integrate into german society. this is unsurprisingly easier said than done. getting to turkey, no problem. >> sakher: yes. >> anthony: turkey to greece, problem. >> hani: getting to turkey is now a problem. >> anthony: right. >> hani: but at that time it wasn't a problem. >> anthony: next went from greece to macedonia? >> sakher: yes. >> anthony: is that correct? welcome there? no. serbia? no. were you welcomed here? >> sakher: yes. very welcome. >> anthony: so here we are, a city doing the right thing. germany and cologne had reason to believe they could pull this off. absorb all those refugees from a culture very different than their own. the turkish presence is larger here than any other in the country. the infrastructure exists more
or less to handle this enormous influx. >> hani: it exists. an integration of 200-, 300,000 would be easier than integration of 1.1 million that entered in 2015. this is a challenge not only for the germans, but also for those who came to integrate in the community. it's something that have to be work -- work on from both sides, not only the syrians, but also the germans. >> anthony: greece, probably the least prepared, least equipped to take in thousands of refugees from syria, afghanistan, and elsewhere, is being flooded with desperate children, women, men. they wash up on their shores alive and dead. but here on the cyclades -- >> female broadcaster: the country could find itself kicked out of europe. >> anthony: -- it feels a million miles from the greece

>> djily: from day one. the first thing we did was go do a campaign called "my voting card, my weapon." and we did songs and we did mobile concerts all over the country to raise awareness and it was the bum rush in the various spots. everybody went to register. that's, that's the step that's leaving us, you can see, that's the step into being conscious of what your power is. with this specific movement that we started and raising awareness i think the african union of people can start from here 'cause this is amazing. the new generation will learn from what we've done and maybe the next president might not be a politician at all. you never know. >> chris: i mean, are things more troubled? or -- what, is that just the way it is? >> anthony: i'd like to think it's all gonna be okay.

life well planned. see what a raymond james advisor can do for you. the possibility of a flare was almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection.

the most important producers of underground rock, albini produced some of the most influential music of the last 25 years. you have remarkably lenient, um, views on, uh, music sharing. your pricing structure as a producer is, you know, somewhat against the grain of the usual business model, unusual for the music industry. what, what are you, some kind of a communist? what -- what -- what -- what -- ? >> steve: well, i mean, i have a, i have a healthy suspicion of capitalism as a method. i feel like, you know, left unchecked, capitalism is, is a kind of cultural sociopathy. like, the endgame of capitalism is that everything is crappier and crappier and people are more and more exploited, and i feel like the social model that i'm comfortable with, which is that we're all in the same game. we're all trying to do the same thing, we just want to make sure that things get better for everybody. >> anthony: thank you so much. >> waiter: you're welcome. >> steve: the people who are productive and content and part of an enterprise that is, you know, righteous, for lack of a better term. >> anthony: right.
